[racchabanda] రచ్చబండ కవితలు

 


I am no Portia, but

 

Last year -The guy did not blink an eye

When he is notified as an Official  

That I lost a Jewel of Price sky high

No concern whatsoever. Nil.

 

But he asks me now so solemn:

"Should I Keep or discard a few grain

Of Basmati rice, purchased ten

Years ago in Dehradun?"

 

I told him in my sweetest possible voice

He should save the rice for that "Right Occasion."

 

When I have to hear stupid questions like this

Purely Because of my Indian appearance  

I can't help thinking of Merchant of Venice

And of this Miserable Miserly Man's race.
